    The breed is American Hairless Terrier, but like most (all?) hairless breeds, there is a coated variety. It is a little odd to have an American Hairless Terrier with hair, but that's the name, so there are a lot of confused people! ;)

    She's not used to big dogs, so the Collies are a little much, but she's trying to make up to them. She just slinks up and flips over, then does zoomies between their legs. They're patient and love puppies, so it's only a matter of time. :D

    It's been fun when people say "Oh what a cute Jack Russell!" and i respond with "Oh, she's not a Jack. She's an American Hairless Terrier." Then I watch them look at her sideways, trying to decide why she is so furry! :rofl1:

    Yes, along with the Terrier Racing and conformation. The sire has his CH (or equiv) in all of these venues, so I'm hoping she takes after dad! :cool:
